Pours a velvety midnight black with single finger of lathery khaki foam that dissipates rather quickly, but clings for a while.

Roasted malts, rye, chocolate, and dark fruits.

Tons of roasted malt flavor, chocolate, coffee, and whiskey.

Heavy-bodied, light-medium carbonation, bitter, chewy, and very smooth.

Overall, I was incredibly surprised at how great this brew is. Fantastic job Spiteful!

2014 vintage

Pours completely black with an approximately 1 finger mocha colored head. The latter dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is primarily oak and vanilla. The taste follows on from the nose being primarily the notes of the barrel - oak and vanilla. Some chocolate comes through as well. Mouthfeel is creamy, albeit a bit on the thin side. Carbonation seems suitable. Seems pretty much all barrel for the most part so a bit one note in this regard. Decent offering but nothing remarkable.

22 oz. bottle, no bottled on date or Batch # this time. Spiteful Brewing God Damn Pigeon Porter aged in rye whiskey barrels from 7-5-13 to 5-19-14. I was lucky enough to acquired this bottle and the other two barrel-aged Spiteful beers from the local beer store for $17.98 a piece. Expectations are excellent.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a dark brown colored body, opaque black in the glass with a finger of dark mocha head. Leaves behind some good spotty lacing. Looks a lot like the original version of the beer. Appears adequately carbonated.

S - A heavenly aroma - vanilla, cream, oak, whiskey booze heat, cookie dough.

T - The taste follows the nose - creamy, boozy, vanilla, oak, rye whiskey alcohol warmth.

M - The feel is silky smooth and creamy. Medium-full bodied, with perfect low lying carbonation. Mild alcohol / whiskey warmth on the finish.

Overall, a delicious barrel-aged rendition of the base beer from Spiteful Brewing. Definitely looking forward to trying the other barrel aged beers.
